Flow 'beachballing' when I add a trigger condition

I have created a simple flow to add a to-do task when a new sharepoint list item is created. It works fine with out any trigger condition. Ideally I'd like this to work when the 'repair' filed on my sharepoint list is marked as 'Yes'. I'm using the espression: @equals(triggerBody()?['repair'],true) but as the title says when I run the flow, it just beachballs. However when I remove the trigger condition it works (albeit with every item not just the ones marked yes)

 

I'm new to power automate and flows, is there any way to debug the problem?

 

 

Edit:

After leaving it run for long enough, I finally got this error, if it helps:

 
Flow run timed out because the starting action was not performed. Please try again.

Hi @UCdr ,

 

For debugging, Typically what I do is remove the trigger condition and right after the flow trigger add a compose action with your expression. Test flow and see what response you receive.
